I’m really late … like they are almost 10 months old, but I finally took the boy’s 9 month old photos. So much has changed with them that I feel like I could write forever! I think the best way to tackle this is with a list. Man I love lists ….
- They are eating cereal three times a day
- They eat about 8oz of a fruit or veggie at each meal … plus cereal!
- Weston is a human garbage disposal and will eat anything at any temperature
- Logan is a fussy eater and must have his food warmed
- They like to steal each other’s cheerios
- I gave the boys some corn kernels just yesterday and they love them!
- The boys eat breakfast the best! I mean lots of grunting and whining if I don’t go fast enough
Not only are the boys eating a ton and trying all kinds of new foods, they are WAY more mobile! Weston pulled himself up to his feet first. We found him after his nap on his knees, hanging his arms over the edge, yelling and screaming. Doug and I lowered the cribs immediately! Logan still has a little trouble getting up to his feet but can do it if he really wants to. He’s got a big old Buddha belly to pull up. Just today, Weston pulled himself up on the couch, walked all the way to the other end of the couch and was really thinking about trying to reach for the basket close by. He was bouncing his knees and reaching out his hand as if he really wanted to, but wasn’t quite sure he would make it. My bet is that he wouldn’t have. But they’ve got to learn, right?
They have started to know their names. Not always, but most of the time, they’ll look when I sing their name. They really respond to smiling and laughing. I can coax Logan all the way back from the other side of the kitchen by calling his name and making baby faces at him. Logan also likes to crawl into the kitchen when I’m cooking and grabs at my feet so I pick him up. Weston does the same, but he usually just pulls himself up to standing while holding onto my pants.
They don’t like it when I leave the room. Not always … but most of the time they are more aware of who is around.
Both of them LOVE their big brother. Jaden can do just about anything and get them to laugh and giggle. I’m talking full out screams, bloody murder, hysteria. And Jaden comes along and the boys are all smiles. Brotherhood is a tight bond.
I’m really enjoying the triplet’s age. You can play with them … make them laugh and giggle. They also can occupy themselves just a little (with the right rattle or toy of course). Just like with Jaden, each age gets better and better.
So we moved to the couch. They sat a little better … but they sure are silly! Note that Weston’s outfit isn’t snapped in the crotch – not because I was lazy or forgot … the kid won’t sit still long enough to get the snapped! I gave up ….
And here is a close up (and a little blurry) picture of Logan’s new face … tongue up over his top lip, smacking … and drooling of course. Reminds me of the face Owen used to make in one of the last videos of him. It’s not sad to me though, I find it comforting. They have a little bit of Owen with them.
I’m an awful mom … things got so crazy, I never got pictures of Weston on his own. Terrible. Next time I’ll take a few extra 🙂
ps Jaden starts school in 13 days! yikes!
